Roboy is building Teams to compete in the
AI for Prosthetics challenge,
(part of NIPS 2018 Competition Track).

What the challenge is about

In this competition you are tasked with developing a controller to enable a physiologically-based human model with a prosthetic leg to walk and run. 

So basically, almost a Roboy in simulation.

You are provided with a human musculoskeletal model, a physics-based simulation environment where you can synthesize physically and physiologically accurate motion, and datasets of normal gait kinematics.

You are scored based on how well your agent adapts to requested velocity vector changing in real time.

Deep Reinforcement Learning

Deep Reinforcement Learning

To solve problems in medicine and to promote open-source tools in RL research (the physics simulator, the RL environment, and the competition platform) are all open-source.

Encourage RL research

Encourage RL research

In computationally complex environments, with stochasticity and highly-dimensional action spaces.

Coincidentially, this is also Roboy Team’s final Hackathon for the Semester. So there are like 50 people around working on Roboy – we’re happy to help 😉

A lot of fun
